a dramatic change or departure from status quo as a means of solving a problem, such as a paradigm shift.

Two possible origins; 1) in medieval agriculture farmers learned to reinvigorate their farm land by rotating crops. A crop that depleted nutrients would be replaced by a crop that fixed nutrients. This radical change required a seasonal "seed change" 2) before industrial agriculture farmers would save seeds, gleening the best seeds at each harvest to plant next year's crop. If crops weren't doing well a new strain with favorable characteristics might do better and new seeds would have to be found; hence a "seed change" would be required.
You can't solve a problem with the same mind set that created the problem; a seed change is required.
